Randy Shannon sues Miami
By Matt Fortuna
MIAMI -- Former Miami coach Randy Shannon is suing his alma mater, saying the university decided to not pay him all that he was guaranteed in his final contract.
Shannon was fired in November 2010 after going 28-22 in four seasons. On Feb. 1, 2010, two deals -- an employment agreement and a guarantee agreement -- both went into effect. The lawsuit states that because those were less than a year old when Shannon was fired, the university decided to prorate the amount of what he was owed in the event of a firing by about one-sixth.
Exact amounts of what Shannon was owed were not detailed in the lawsuit, because terms of the employment agreement requires him to keep the amounts confidential. The lawsuit said Miami has been making monthly payments to Shannon, but at a rate lower than what was stipulated in the coach's contract.
